a philosophical truism


The only time that lasts is outside time


The only truthfulness is timelessness,
the only zone of durability is out of here,
the only perfect love is without time,
and there is no reliability
but in that 'nowhere' outside time,
in the transcendency of temporariness,
in all that is not touched
by the mortality of mundaneness.
Then there is nothing, you would say.
No, you are wrong.
The 'now' is all deceit and foolery,
the whims of fashion are the mirages
of falsity and self-deceit and disillusion
it is all a fraud, while only dreams that go beyond
continue living, striving forward and surviving,
constantly outliving all the vanity of passing lies;
and those that stick to dreams
preferring them to the illusions of reality
will see them triumph with all life
to vanquish all mortality.
